Print abstract sumi e “Do Nothing Till You Hear It From Me” by Marilyn Wells
The musical composition this painting was inspired by is much loved
“Pay no attention to what's said...
Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream
Is over my head…
Do nothing till you hear it from me”
-Duke Ellington 1863S
The line that is maybe most poignant is “Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream
Is over my head”
and perhaps the sumi e would be better named that. Have you ever had someone shoot you down when you were dreaming big? We must dream big as we are co-creators with God. I’m struggling right now to begin actual, physical art work again, having devoted the past 3 months to developing on online store presence. Sometimes I’ve been asked, why do you keep pursuing that - just get a well-paying job. But I dream on and try to keep the seams of my dreams knit tight to my heart.
